Rare and Refined

19 Nov

A new addition to our selection of Cartier frames is a handsome and exceptional sunglass. Crafted from the burl wood of a tree native to the Ambon Island in Indonesia, the temples of this model feature a distinctive tangled vain. The rare grain of the wood is complimented by the smooth champagne gold finish of the C Decor at the hinge.


Amboyna burls yield very peculiar and highly figured wood.  The beauty of  this highly prized material  is most commonly  featured in examples of  exquisite marquetry.

An  alternative to the precious Cartier frame which features a faux burl motif is produced by the French  eyewear company Vue dc…   The rich red colour and grain-like pattern  of this  zyl  frame are  equally exceptional .

Our valued client and Toronto resident Carole Tanenbaum has earned an international reputation as an authority on the subject of vintage costume jewelry.  Her world renowned collection of bijou adornments reflects her passion and rarefied taste for exceptional accessories.

Like impeccably designed eyewear,  a beautiful piece of jewelry can become the focal point of an ensemble.  In regards to incorporating  an accent piece with an outfit Carole suggests that “there’s really no better way of posturing yourself as a unique dresser or feeling great about what you throw on”.



You can view pieces from Carole’s remarkable collection virtually at her website or take advantage of a rare opportunity to admire them  in person.  We will be utilizing our 2536 Bayview Avenue location as a venue for showcasing a selection of her vintage couture jewelry on Wednesday October 9th from 2:00- 6:00 pm and on Thursday October 10th from 2:00- 8:00 pm.

We appreciate  that our  sophisticated clientele   shares  Carole’s appreciation of accessories and that they will be grateful of this rare local opportunity.
